Our baby is 11 months old!
And he’s definitely over the weekly/monthly photo sessions.
He’s been fighting a cold since late last week, which attributed to the photo session hate, but he seems to be on the mend.
This month has been a whirlwind! He visited Florida (and Georgia briefly) for the first time, saw the ocean, learned to pull up and cruise furniture, and started saying several more words.
Bath time is fun time for this kid! He no longer uses the baby tub, and I try to get him into the tub really early so he can spend a lot of time in there. He loves to play with his toys – and touch the water coming out of the faucet.
He now says ‘mom’ and ‘momma’ as well as ‘dada’. He can say ‘bye’ and ‘uh uh oh’ as well as ‘no’ when you tell him ‘no’. He says ‘dog’ when he sees a dog and ‘cat’ when he sees our cat. (He sounds like he’s whispering ‘cat’ and sometimes misses the ‘t’ but we get the picture.)
He has also started blowing kisses. This has been very random and rare, but it’s fun to work with him on.
Lucas goes to bed at 7:30 every night and his sleeping through the night skills have seen better days. He sometimes wakes once or twice – or three or four times. It’s so hit or miss. He sleeps with two lovies – a Tigger and a monkey. He LOVES his monkey.
He weights just over 20 pounds and is moving into size 4 (disposable) diapers, but still in the medium gDiapers (best investment ever!) He’s still able to wear some of his 12 month clothes, but is wearing a good amount of 18 month clothes.
Basically, he’s growing every day. And we think he’s brilliant.
